Making M.A.R.I. explores the rich history of the Middle American Research Institute since the 1920s. As a constituent of Tulane University's campus, M.A.R.I. plays an integral role in maintaining Tulane's long-standing connection with Latin America and has conducted nearly a century of research in Mesoamerica. In this exhibit we examine M.A.R.I.'s legacy of research and outline the Institute's trajectory for the next hundred years.
Mini-exhibits on the third floor of Dinwiddie Hall allow Interns to design and showcase the diverse holdings of the M.A.R.I. Collections. Our current installation focuses on contemporary pottery, exposing diversity and ingenuity in techniques.
This intern-designed photography exhibit follows the path of the Pan American/University of Pennsylvania expedition as they flew over Maya sites in Mexico, Belize, and Guatemala. The exhibit uses images sourced from the M.A.R.I. Archives taken by the Fairchild Aerial Surveys company.
